Thanksgiving Joan Dress
This dress was used in promotion pictures for Mad Men, and i finally got to make my version of it!
It's not really a Thanksgiving dress but i thought the color was appropriate for today.
I draped the bodice and collar and used a vintage skirt pattern adding the front pleat. The fabric is a silk/cotton blend and i must say i really like this fabric, it irons nicely and doesn't water spot! it is very light weight so i lined it in cotton, and i used the matte side of the fabric, the other side looks like satin. The only downside that i found was it does wrinkly easily but that is to be expected with silk
